The one with sunshine, triathletes and an age category record
A super-sunny and calm September morning plus the weekend's triathlon fun brought out 408 people this week to run, jog and walk the course and a whopping 67 recorded new personal bests - well done!
Big thanks to all the volunteers without whom it would not have been possible:
Michael GIBBONS • Marc BONALDI • Kate KERMACK • Charlie HEMPSTEAD • Adam WALTER • Tristan Xavier SHARP • Mark BROCKLEHURST • Michelle PAULI • Harriet CUNNINGHAM • Julie RAINEY • Jessica ENGLISH • Leyla CARRINGTON • Deborah ABSALOM • Jon BINNEY • Darren HALE • Stephen PAYNE • Lucy ROBERTS • David SPENCER • Judith MACKENZIE • Harry GILL • Luke CARTER • Antony BRADLEY • Mark DYSON • Brodie TAYLOR-MORAY • Jane TEW • Tony AUSTIN • Linsey BUCK • Caroline SHARP • Peter BENNETT • Lily GORROD • Archie FERGUSON • James RING
There was a last minute rush to get enough marshalls this week, which isn't much fun for anyone. Why not ease the core team's nerves by taking a look at the future roster and filling in a gap for an upcoming week? There are roles to suit everyone and it's easy and fun!
Congratulations to Peter Cutter on reaching his 50 milestone!
Age category record!
The Prom has a new record in the women 18-19 category - well done Almi Nerurkar on a brilliant result of 00:17:29 with an 85.61% age grading. Great running.

"It as my first parkrun ever today and what a great run it was. Thank you to all the organisers and volunteers and the runners - such a friendly welcoming atmosphere, I will be back."
Hope to see you again soon, Sophie!
A message from Breeze
Breeze Network - Sussex & South Downs organise women-only bike rides and said: "Seven women signed up to the British Cycling Let's Ride/ Breeze ride from the Marina and back. Some spectated, some ran, one got a pb! One woman had a go at running for the first time! We are leading several women-only free supported rides to and from local parkruns. What better way to warm up and ditch the car? Come and join us https://www.letsride.co.uk/breeze"
Flying feet of the week
It's a pas de deux this week. And the lead flyer is none other than David Spencer, more usually seen setting up, closing down and managing the funnel.
Bonus inadvertent hokey cokey of the week
You put your left leg in, your left leg out...
Thanks to Peter Bennett for all the fab photos. Check out the full album on the Hove Prom facebook page.
Well done to everyone who also did the triathlon this week, see you next week!
